"REMEMBER THE CONFEDERATE FLAG IS JUST A SYMBOL AND NOTHING MORE THAN THAT"
Are you kidding me? Just a symbol? Nothing more? If you are a Southerner and that is all it is to you, you have a heart of stone and a brain of yankee mush. Here's what it means to me . . . .
What My Flag Means To me
When I look upon the Battle Flag my heart beats ever fast,
amid that cross and 13 stars are memories of my past.
There's anguished cries,a Rebel yell,a tear on frozenface, a straining mule,a half an arm,a hallowed, bloody place.
There's mother's cries and father's hearts and husband's short notes home,there's yellowed linen holding dear,
old Bible, broken comb.
It tells me of our battlefields, amid the willowed glen,
where godly ground cries out today with blood from Southron men.
It tells me of the dank and dust,rations cut in half, it whispers of forgotten place,a soldier's epitaph.
The ragged flag, pockmarked with holes and blood stained; Let her fly,her shadows hold the righteous cause
and waves in southern sky.
It whispers to me, not forget our wounded nor our dead;
it gives me strength as freedoms fall to always look ahead.
And as she waves, I hold her dear and offer murmered prayer,that one day she will fly from every Southern city square.
So sleep, my Southron soldier men,they'll not take her away,for under that beloved flag lies all our Southron gray.
Her field of red remembers you,her cross will not come down
and all the glory of her stars are fixtures in your crown.
I like the poem its the truth and very meaningful now if all would just believe in the same we would all probably get along much better. thanks.
